To wrap up Podcast week, I’m going to rapid fire a few of my favorite listens:
5 Leadership Questions is a strong podcast that deals with church leadership specifically.
Up First is an NPR podcast I’ve started listening to each morning. It covers about 3 major news stories each day, and has helped me feel somewhat like an adult.
Pardon the Interruption is an ESPN show that requires a taste for arguments and yelling. I’m a big fan of Tony Kornheiser, so I listen occasionally.
Finally, the podcast that gives me an opportunity to unplug and unwind: the Tony Kornheiser Podcast. This has been a mainstay in my rotation for the last 7 years or so. It’s good, a little snarky, and pretty informative on sports, politics, movies, and a lot more.
That’s it for now. I probably have close to 30 podcasts in my queue, so I’m usually able to find one that fits my mood. But for now, the ones I’ve shared this week are my current go to shows. Hope you enjoy!
Today I’m going to continue sharing a podcast that is on my regular rotation.
But first, a little perspective.
I don’t listen only to ministry related or sermon based podcasts. I like to have a variety of podcasts ready, depending on what area I’d like to hone.
As i mentioned Tuesday, I don’t read regularly, so having a variety of genres is my nod to someone who carries four books at one time, never knowing which will appeal in the moment.
Yesterday, my genre was leadership, and specifically church leadership. There are others that fall under that category, but today’s does not.
The StoryBrand podcast is a no-frills marketing podcast. Donald Miller is blunt, but also does a good job of engaging and inspiring the listener to grow. There is so much that can be learned, so give it a listen:
Can I confess something? Reading is a discipline for me, and one I’m not very good at practicing.
But, I make up for it with the sheer number of podcasts to which I listen. The topics cover sports, leadership, business, news, and sheer entertainment.
This week, I’m going to share a few of my favorite podcasts.
What better place to start today, than with one of my favorite Ministry Leadership Podcasts?
I stumbled onto the Carey Nieuwhof Leadership podcast about 2 years ago. They are long (most going past an hour), but he does a great job interviewing his guests.
Here’s a link to an episode with Jon Acuff based on his new book Finish. Check it out!
